On a violently stormy morning – with power outages everywhere – it was questionable whether Ruck It would happen. But just in the nick of time – the storms passed and the power turned on at Union Point. With 2 men in attendance, we proceeded with the workout as scheduled. After a quick warmup stretch, we hit the road.
Today’s workout stuck to the theme of 4/15 – 4 sets of 15 reps of each exercise – with the purpose of taxing those muscle groups to near failure. The route was a standard loop – Front Street to Middle Street to Broad Street back to Front Street with 4 stops in between.
Stop 1 – 15 Squats x 4
Stop 2 – 15 Incline Merkins x 4
Stop 3 – 15 Shoulder Press x 4
Stop 4 – 15 bicep curls x 4
With most exercises, we performed the final set at a slower pace to increase the “tax” on the muscle.
After the first loop, we had 15 minutes to spare, so we completed 1 more loop, completing 1 more set of 15 for each exercise along the way – extra slow. We made it back precisely at 6:15.
Thanks to Bitcoin for keeping me company this morning. I hope everyone has a great week!
